International Labor Standards - History, Theory, and Policy Options (Paperback): Kaushik Basu, Henrik Horn, Lisa Roman, Judith... International Labor Standards - History, Theory, and Policy Options (Paperback)
Kaushik Basu, Henrik Horn, Lisa Roman, Judith Shapiro
R1,054 R957 Discovery Miles 9 570 Save R97 (9%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book addresses the controversial call for international labor standards, seeking to productively further this debate by considering the economic implications and history of these standards. A result of an initiative by Professor Kaushik Basu in his capacity as member of the Expert Group of Development Issues (EGDI) sponsored by the Swedish Foreign Ministry, the contributions are based on discussions at a seminar held in Stockholm in August 2001. They focus on four central questions:
How did the labor standards movement evolve in the past, and what can we learn from its history?
What do contemporary economic theories tell us about the possible impact of international labor standards?
What solid empirical evidence do economists have about the incidence, causes and effects of child labor?
What kind of global institutions do we have or need in order to enforce any agreement on labor standards, and what role should the ILO and WTO play?


Compiling the best research in the field, this book provides a solid basis for policy decisions, while also serving as a challenging text for students in trade, development, and labor economics.

Institutions in Transition - Vietnamese State Bank Reform (Hardcover, 1999 ed.): Lisa Roman Institutions in Transition - Vietnamese State Bank Reform (Hardcover, 1999 ed.)

"If you want to become a doctor, practice in a war; if you want to become an economist, practice in Vietnam". 1 Phan Van Tiem Vietnam is one of many countries presently undergoing fundamental institutional change: the market mechanism is replacing central planning. So far, the achievements are impressive. In the mid-1980s, the country failed to feed its population, suffered from hyperinflation and faced general economic stagnation. In the early 1990s, the annual economic growth rate had accelerated to some eight to nine percent, the inflation rate had fallen to two-digit levels - sometimes even lower - and the country had become one of the world's largest rice exporters. Add some more details - the increased foreign trade, the inflow of foreign investments, the diversification of agriculture, and ~e various reform measures taken to alter the basic economic structure - and the success story of the Vietnamese transition is told. The country has hence followed the same path as its northern neighbor China, and provided a counterexample to much more cumbersome processes that have been adopted in a number of other transforming countries, notably those of the former USSR. This transition is by no means over. Indeed, it is misleading to think of transition as a process that departs from a well-defined pre-condition and moves towards an equally well- defined end-point.
